According to PW Insider, Sytch is slated for the pre-trial hearing next Thursday, October 13th in the criminal case against her in Florida. She has been charged with one count of DUI causing death (DUI Manslaughter, a felony in the third degree), one count of causing death while operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked driver’s license (a felony in the third degree), four counts of DUI causing injury to a person, and three counts of DUI causing damage to property following the March death of 75-year-old Julian Lasseter during a traffic incident in Ormond Beach, Florida.
Court records also show that depositions of four police officers involved in Sytch’s case are all scheduled for November 15th. This past August, Sytch waived her right to a speedy trial “arising out of the criminal episode made the subject of this prosecution; specifically, the right to be tried within 175 days of her being taken into custody as provided by law and Rule 3.191, Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure.”
At the time, Sytch was given “criminal indigent status”, meaning that she is without sufficient income to afford a lawyer for defense in her criminal case. She and her fiance James Pente are being sued in civil court by the family of Julian Lasseter as well.
That case is currently making its way through Florida courts, and there have been no major updates to the court records for that lawsuit. Ringside News will monitor updates on Sytch’s ongoing legal issues heading to trial.
